Shark Attack Victim Released

The family of a Tennessee teenager considers themselves lucky, after their son is released from the hospital.

Less than three weeks after 17-year-old Craig Hutto of Lebanon lost his leg in a shark attack, he is back home from Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.

In June, Hutto and his brother were fishing in the Florida panhandle, when a shark bit him on his thigh.

Today the Hutto family spoke at a press conference in Nashville.

Craig's brother Brian is credited with the rescue.

A Craig Hutto day has been scheduled in Lebanon, to help off set the medical bills the family incurred in Florida.

Brian Hutto was a Western Kentucky University graduate.
